Béla Bartók essays by Béla Bartók( Book )

22 editions published between 1976 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world knows Béla Bartók as a composer. The essays contained in this voluminous compilation disclose a side of the great Hungarian previously known to relatively few persons: Bartók the man of letters. Theorist, performer, collector, scholar, and composer, Béla Bartók is internationally renowned as one of the most important and influential musicians of the twentieth century. Throughout his life he wrote lectures and essays that dealt with virtually every aspect of European music. These essays, previously scattered in specialized journals, deal with the wide range of interests and expertise: folk music and musical folklore, the music of his contemporaries and great predecessors, a brief autobiography, the structure and performance of his own music, the sale of sound recordings, and music education [Publisher description]

Overview: This compilation of essays, lectures, and scholarly papers on Bartok studies from 1953 to the present includes insights obtained by the author over a half-century career as a Bartok specialist. Divided into three parts, chapters examine Bartok as a multifaceted music figure: composer, folklorist, pianist, and teacher. As composer, it includes program notes, an introduction to his principles of composition, and theoretic-analytical discussion of selected works, including Mikrokosmos. As folklorist, it examines the outcome of Bartok's fieldwork, methodology, and findings in East European, Arabic, and Turkist autochthonous folk music materials. Bartok's American years are also discussed. The narrative is supported by a substantial number of musical examples and references

Bela Bartók studies in ethnomusicology by Béla Bartók( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composer, folklorist, and performer Bela Bartok (1881-1945) is internationally renowned as one of the most important and influential musicians of the twentieth century. Throughout his life he wrote lectures and essays that dealt with virtually every aspect of East European folk music. Many of those essays, previously scattered in specialty journals in four different languages, are collected here for the first time. All are concerned with that branch of musicology within which Bartok was most influential, and for which he is best known: research into folk music, or ethnomusicology. The volume includes a preface by editor Benjamin Suchoff, a leading expert on Bartok's music and writings. Suchoff examines Bartok's developing views on the folk-music traditions of Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, and the Arab world

The book is intended for piano teachers, students, and performers, as well as anyone interested in Bartok's life and work as pianist, educator, and composer."--Jacket
